    Before the game it was Pittsburgh this and Pittsburgh that and the Pats will have to step up bigtime to win.  Now that the Pats soundly beat the Steelers, the media, of all things, are making excuses for the Steelers.  If you follow media logic, you can explain away every win by a team this year as being the result of their oppponent's lack of something in that game.  Just call it the way it is, the team that played better that day won, no excuses.

    Unfortunately Peter King is correct. The Jets are the best team in football right now. You can't lose to Cleveland and expect to be considered the best. When the Patriots lose to the Colts and Lions we can talk. Big Ben did post an incredible 387 yards passing. Imagine what Manning will do...possibly 500 yards

    Don't the jets deserve some recognition for actually beating the patriots and beating the team that beat the pats last week?

    Or does none of that matter?

    There is NO best team in football right now!!  Why the Jets? Why not the Falcons?  Or the Patriots?  Or still, the Steelers? Each team has its chinks in the armor.  The Jets are a more complete team.. then why are they struggling against inferior teams that make mistakes to hand the Jets game winning opportunities?

    I've said this many times this season..  a team seems to be the "flavor of the week" with the media.  Jets are in the talk now ( again ) only because the Pats play poorly and lost to the Browns last week while the Jets escaped this week.  We may not agree on any team being the truly the best team as each week one of the top echelon teams stumble and they could all stumble in the playoffs.  We could see a team like the Cardinals of 2008 come out of nowhere with a string of hot games.  We may not like it, but it will all come down to 3 - 4 games in January and February and the team that comes out on top may not please everyone.

    Lying?  If you want to disagree with the writer that's one thing, but to claim an agenda is ridiculous, I think.  He's got Brady as his current MVP.  Further you have no idea what his criteria for his rankings are. 

    You can claim the Jets have been mediocre over the past few weeks, but the pats lost by 20 last week and the jets beat that team this week.  Claiming the Browns were spent from a SB is just as tainted a perspective as you think King has. 

    Pats had a great win last night, and I expect them to be favored by a TD vs. the colts.  Enjoy that.

    Yes, it does matter.  I'm no YETS fan but give Mark Sanchez some credit, he played hurt yesterday and in the end he did lead them to a victory in a game that in the past they would have found a way to lose.  It looked that way again yesterday, ineffectual in O.T., until the very end and the they came away with a victory and they found a way to win and keep pace in the AFC East.  IMO, the YETS are an improved team and they are the competition in the AFC East.  The PATS YETS game in Foxboro looms very large indeed. I do not expect a wild card to come out of the AFC East, so the winner of that game, barring the unforeseen elsewhere, will most likely win the division.

    Re: Media

    You don't get style points in the NFL and there is no "strength of schedule" metric factored into the playoff equation. A win is a win is a win, and I would consider the fact that Green New Jersey is playing marginally and still winning to be a bad omen, not a good one. The good news for the Pats is that they have the opportunity to slap the sh*t out every team that could potentially stand in the way of a number-one seed in the playoffs. They checked off another box on the list last night.

    Stampede Blue is next.

    We comin'

    In Response to Media:
    Peter King still is bitter about his now lack of access to the Patriots. He has the Jets at #1 after a month of mediocre football. Apparently, Mark Sanchez is also now incredible. lol Cleveland shot their wad last week for their Super Bowl and 3 missed tackles on a quick seam route in OT now means Sanchez is great and the Jets looked better than NE did this week. Priceless. King also talks about the Steelers O Line injuries as to why NE got so many sacks and pressures.  Yet, prior to the game all we heard was how Pitt's O Line depth was great and no matter who they put in, they'd be great and it doesn't change what they do. So predictable.  Anyone who is not full of it, would not walk away from the last month and claim NE looks worse than NY. I cannot wait for that game in Foxborough.

    well... until we beat the Jets, they they beat us head to head.  And remember the team that blew us out last week?  the browns?  Pretty sure they beat them yesterday.  Just sayin...

    Re: Media

    where do you get the idea that King is "essentially" saying NY has played better than the pats the last month?

    I didn't proclaim the jets looked better than the pats this week.  You seem to want to read into anything and everything you disagree with.  The very simple fact is that these 2 teams have the same record.  The Jets beat the pats.  The Jets beat the team that crushed the pats last week. 

    What does all of this mean?  Its understandable that a writer could put the Jets ahead of the Pats in power rankings without having an agenda against the pats.

    In Response to Re: Media : The excuse is ridiculous.  You obviously have zero respect for the jets, because if the Browns played their SB (blew their load) last week and yet played the Jets to OT, then the Jets must stink.  Except for that 7-2 record, and that win against the pats.  Geez.  Give credit where and when it is due.     I don't suppose that you are discounting the pats win last night although pitt was missing 60% of its oline starters. 
    Posted by Indylove

    Ne was/is missing 40% of its O-line starters. It's an excuse that Collinsworth wouldn't let up on, so he could explain why NE was taking Pitt to the wood-shed unlike any other team has done since, well, since NE did it a few years back. 

    I too think it is ironic that when NE beat Baltimore and SD (two likely playoff teams) in cliffhangers, it was a sign of weakness. But, if as I am gathering here from those who read the column, NJ barely beats the Browns and Det, two teams that won't sniff it, and it is a sign of strength? Peculiar logic. 

    But to be honest, if Russ didn't "care" about King's ratings, then he wouldn't have read it. I didn't.

    Z - That wasn't the point. 

    Russ was making an excuse that the Browns were spent from last week's win vs the pats which is why they didn't beat the Jets.  I simply was pointing out a familiar excuse for the Patriots success vs. the steelers.  

    I don't believe either of these things, but I can come up with an excuse that a Steelers fan might make.   

    Ultimately, the point was that simply that King can have the Jets first/Pats second without having an agenda against the pats. 

    That's all.
